TEMPERATURE & TIME INSTRUCTIONS
1. Turn on the machine by pushing the on/off switch.
2. To change or set the temperature, press the menu button on the
digital control. The light next to “TEMP” will light. Press the up ▲,
or down ▼, button to your desired setting.
3. To change or set the time, press the menu button a second time on
the digital control. The light next to “TIME” will light. Press the up
▲, or down ▼, button to your desired setting.
4. When you have your desired settings press the menu button a
third time to lock in your settings otherwise the machines
previous settings will revert back.
5. When the machine reaches the preset temperature, the
controller will beep once. Machine is now ready to use.
Note: The controller has a high temperature alarm. If the
machine temperature ever exceeds 460° F (238C) then the
controller will beep continuously to alert the operator.
PRESSURE
1. The pressure control knob, located on the top of
the machine, should be set so that the heat head
will lock down firmly.
2. Pressure is reduced by turning knob (with
machine open) counterclockwise and
increased by turning it clockwise.
3
Pressure knob
OPERATION
3. The amount of platen pressure can be monitored on the controller
with the display labeled “Platen Pressure.” A value between 0-9
will be displayed when the machine is closed indicating the amount
of platen pressure on the machine. Values of 0-3 indicate “light”
pressure, 4-6 “medium” pressure and 7-9 “heavy” pressure. If the
value exeeds 9 then a “-” will appear in the display indicating that
the maximum value that can be displayed has been exceeded.
NOTE: Adjustments may be required from one garment to another
and will vary to achieve the desired result.
CAUTION: Excessive pressure can cause structural damage,
voiding the machine warranty!
TRANSFER APPLICATION
1. Set the temperature, time, and pressure to the desired settings as
instructed on page 3. Always consult your specific transfer
manufactures recommendations.
Successful transfer work depends on the correct balance of time,
temperature and pressure. The type and thickness of the material
and the kind of transfer being used will determine what settings are
necessary. Always “pretest” a new transfer (or if unknown settings)
on “pellon” or scrap garment before applying to a new garment to
avoid unnecessary spoilage.
2. Align garment on the lower platen and smooth out the wrinkles.
3. Position the transfer and close the machine.
4. Pull operating handle down, locking the machine closed. After the
designated time has elapsed, the machine opens automatically. If
you want to open the machine before the timer has counted down
to “0”, pull the release lever on the top of the machine’s arm. (See
Page 3)
5. Continuously peel the paper off the transfer (away from your
garment). NOTE: Do not fold the transfer back on itself.
If a hot peel/split transfer is being applied, immediately peel the
paper after the machine has opened. DO NOT allow the transfer to
cool. If a cold peel transfer is being applied, rub the transfer with an
eraser or cloth and allow to cool for 5-10 seconds before removing
the release paper.
Specific application instructions are enclosed with each transfer.

MAINTENANCE
Lubrication
NOTE: Unplug the machine before lubricating.
Your press requires lubrication every 6 months. Using 3-in-1 oil
(available from your hardware store), add one to two drops of
oil on all moving parts.
Cleaning The Heat Platen
Unplug the machine.
After cooling you may clean the heat platen with steel wool,
scrubby, scouring pad/warm water or fine wire brush.
PLATEN REMOVAL
Your press comes standard
with a removable 15”x15” (450)
lower platen or a removable
16”x20” (650) lower platen.
They are both interchangeable
with a specificly designed lower
platens. Interchangeability is
quick, simple and tooless.
1. Remove pin (Fig. A). Grasp the
lower platen with both hands
and lift both sides upward in a
slow, smooth and even motion.
Again, lift both sides evenly to
insure easy removal of the
platen. (Fig. B)
2. By using the same process in
reverse you can place the
desired platen back onto the
press.

TROUBLESHOOTING
WARNING: Before making repairs, be sure on/off switch
is off and machine is unplugged!

www.hixcorp.com to print or call 620-231-8568 and we will send you
one. Parts ordering is available on-line.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem: Machine won’t release at the end of time.
Q. Do you hear the solenoid click when the timer reaches zero?
If no – with a volt meter check for
voltage across the solenoid coil
wires when the timer reaches zero.
If you have line voltage (120V or
220V) then the solenoid is bad and
needs replaced. If there is no line
voltage the controller is bad and
needs replaced.
If yes – Reduce the
pressure on the
machine and see if it
will release then.
Does reducing the pressure fix the problem?
If no- try manually releasing
the machine with the manual
release lever.
If yes – continue to use the lower
pressure setting.
Does it manually release?
If Yes – remove the solenoid cover
and inspect the connecting pin on
the solenoid to see if it is intact or
broken. If broken, replace the pin.
If no – inspect the latch
mechanism to see if it is
jammed.
Problem: Platen pressure indicator not working properly.
Q. Does the platen pressure display show “0” when the press is
locked down?
If yes – Try increasing the pressure If no – does the display show “-”?
If yes – try reducing the pressure
Does increasing the
pressure fix the problem?
Does reducing the
pressure fix the problem?
If no- Call technical support.
